Inspired by Evan Lee, he posted his Top 10 Favorite Movie List(found here), and his challenge to the Contributors of Moviepilot was to make their own Top 10 List.

None of these are chosen by popular demand, i love these movies, I can watch them all day. These are in no particular order and I also challenge all of you readers to make a list, either in the comments or in your article. Have fun and enjoy!

American Psycho

Director: Mary Harron

Starring: Christian Bale, Justin Theroux, Josh Lucas and Bill Sage

Synopsis: A wealthy New York investment banking executive hides his alternate psychopathic ego from his co-workers and friends as he escalates deeper into his illogical, gratuitous fantasies.

Why It's My Favorite: I was looking through Netflix one Saturday night and I came across American Psycho. The pictured showed Christian Bale holding a knife, it peaked my interest. I had already loved Christian Bale(he is my favorite actor), so I thought I would check it out and see what it was. Well I watched it and loved it from start to finish, its not meant to be taken seriously, its a fun story based off of a book and Christian Bale brought Patrick Bateman's character to a whole new level.

Favorite Line: This might seem very bad, but its my favorite to say when i'm in a bad mood. That line would be this, "You're a fucking ugly bitch. I want to stab you to death, and then play around with your blood."

Favorite Scene: A lot of great scenes came from this movie, mine would have to be when Bateman axed Paul Allen in the face. Viewer discretion is advised.

Perks of Being a Wallflower

Director: Stephen Chbosky

Starring: Logan Lerman, Ezra Miller, Emma Watson and Paul Rudd

Synopsis: An introvert freshman is taken under the wings of two seniors who welcome him to the real world.

Why It's My Favorite: The 1st time I saw this movie was about 4 months ago. My friend loves this movie and he said I had to watch it. So I did. Wow this movie has the feels, you can relate to Charlie(Logan Lerman) so much and Lerman's performance is superb along with Emma Watson and Ezra Miller. I bought it about 2 months ago and I watch it every week at least once, it's that good.

Favorite Line: Said by Paul Rudd himself, it had a big impact on me. "We accept the love we think we deserve." Damn that's intense, very true, but damn.

Favorite Scene: This was a tough one to choose, but I figured it out. It would have to be the Tunnel Scene when Sam(Emma Watson) goes to the back of the pick-up truck and stands up, puts her arms out, and lets the wind hit her.

The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers

Director: Peter Jackson

Starring: Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen and Sean Astin

Synopsis: While Frodo and Sam edge closer to Mordor with the help of the shifty Gollum, the divided fellowship makes a stand against Sauron's new ally, Saruman, and his hordes of Isengard.

Why It's My Favorite: I love all 3, but I feel like this one is the best, in my opinion. I honestly have no idea why it's my favorite, so now you might be asking why I even bother putting it on the list, well because I felt like it. I love this movie just a little more then the other 2 and I watched it a couple days ago. I love Peter Jackson's direction, and I especially love the performances from the actors, really superb job they did.

Favorite Line: "The Horn of Helm Hammerhand shall sound in the deep, one last time." Said by King Theoden himself. I love it so much because its do or die and they decide to ride out and see what they can do to the Orks, or rather Aragorn(Viggo Mortensen) knew that Gandalf(Ian McKellen) should be arriving. Either way, great line.

Favorite Scene: The video right above.

Fast and Furious 6

Director: Justin Lin

Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson and Tyrese Gibson

Synopsis: Hobbs has Dominic and Brian reassemble their crew to take down a team of mercenaries: Dominic unexpectedly gets convoluted also facing his presumed deceased girlfriend, Letty.

Why It's My Favorite: I personally love the whole series, but this one is obviously my favorite. I honestly think this should have been the last movie, the way it ended, it added a sense of closure. I remember seeing this in theaters and I loved it, even the annoying kids behind me couldn't ruin it for me, that's how much I loved it.

Favorite Line: Dominic Toretto is wise, as are his lines, "You don't turn your back on family, even when they do."

Favorite Scene: This would have to be the last scene before the credits rolled. All them around the table, Roman(Tyrese Gibson) saying Grace, and everything back to the way it was. This scene is why I think it should have ended right there. Nothing else needed to be apart of it.

Lion King

Directors: Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff

Starring: Matthew Broderick, Jeremy Irons, James Ear Jones and Jonathan Taylor Thomas

Synopsis: Tricked into thinking that he caused the death of his own father, a young lion cub flees and abandons his destiny as the future king.

Why It's My Favorite: I grew up on The Lion King, it's my favorite animated movie and will always be no matter what. The movie is emotional, fun, it has catchy songs, and great lovable characters. I mean come one, Mufasa had Darth Vader's voice, you can't get better than that.

Favorite Line: Rafiki, the crazy monkey, said something inspiring, "Oh yes, the past can hurt. But from the way I see it, you can either run from it, or... learn from it." Indeed you can.

Favorite Scene: Scar's musical scene. Scar is my favorite Disney villain, and his musical scene is the huge climax change that will change everything.

22 Jump Street

Directors: Phil Lord and Christopher Miller

Starring: Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ice Cube and Amber Stevens

Synopsis: After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt and Jenko when they go deep undercover at a local college.

Why It's My Favorite: There are a lot of great comedies, very few of them get me balls laughing like 22 Jump Street does. 21 Jump Street did as well, but not as much, I love 22 a little bit more. I love Ice Cube's humor in this and his hatred towards Schmidt for fucking his daughter(hint: dont fuck your captain's daughter, especially when he's an "Angry Black Captain." Don't do it, it wont end well for you.

Favorite Line: Jenko got excited, "Schmidt fucked the captain's daughter! Schmidt fucked the captain's daughter!" Such a great line.

Favorite Scene: This is hard, if you watched this movie, you know how many great scenes there are. My favorite scene would be either when Ice Cube found out Schmidt and Maya were dating and had fucked, or when Jenko found out, both are fucking hilarious.


Director: Mel Gibson

Starring: Mel Gibson, Brendan Gleeson, Sophie Marceau and Patrick McGoohan

Synopsis: When his secret bride is executed for assaulting an English soldier who tried to rape her, William Wallce begins a revolt and leads Scottish warriors against the cruel English tyrant who rules Scotland with an iron fist.

Why It's My Favorite: I love Medi-Evil movies, they're very enjoyable. Braveheart is no exception and Mel Gibson does a fantastic job not only Directing it, but starring in it as well. Mel Gibson needs to get back to his roots because back in the 90's he was a genius. Braveheart is my favorite Mel Gibson movie and I want more like it, FREEDOM!

Favorite Line: 'FREEDOM" William Wallace's last line before he was killed.

Favorite Scene: William Wallace's great speech about freedom. I love this scene so much because he speaks of freedom and unites the Scottish against their enemy and a great battle is fought.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

Director: Gore Verbinski

Starring: Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush and Keira Knightley

Synopsis: Blacksmith Will Turner teams up with eccentric pirate "Captain" Jack Sparrow to save his love, the governor's daughter, from Jack's former pirate allies, who are now undead.

Why It's My Favorite: A childhood favorite of mine, I used to watch this everyday. Johnny Depp is one of my favorite actors and this is where my love for him started. I loved this movie because of the humor, the fun, and slight horror aspect involved in it.

Favorite Line: "This is the day you will always remember as the day you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow!" Jack Sparrow's most famous line i'm sure.

Favorite Scene: Tough yet again. This scene would have to be when Barbossa's undead crew are marching underwater towards Norrington's ship.

Galaxy Quest

Director: Dean Parisot

Starring: Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell

Synopsis: The alumni cast of a space opera television series have to play their roles as the real thing when an alien race needs their help.

Why It's My Favorite: I never caught on to the reason it was cheesy until about a year ago. Its not only a Star Trek spoof, its a Sci-fi spoof and its so funny and is actually very decent. I don't see how you can hate this movie, its so great.

Favorite Line: "Never give up, never surrender." I loved Tim Allen's hatred of this line, he hated saying it.

Favorite Scene: The Rock Monster scene. This scene was so incredibly hilarious, I could watch it all the time. I haven't watched it in awhile, I will definitely be doing it soon.

Lone Survivor

Director: Peter Berg

Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster

Synopsis: Marcus Luttrell and his team set out on a mission to capture or kill notorious Taliban leader Ahmad Shah, in late June 2005. Marcus and his team are left to fight for their lives in one of the most valiant efforts of modern warfare.

Why It's My Favorite: The intensity of it, the brotherhood, and the story. This is one of the most gruesome war movies ever, and most recent as well. The cast is beyond superb, this is their greatest performance yet. I love tributes to the fallen warriors and at the end when the credits rolled, my heat sank. It was dramatic without trying to be, it really send feels my way.

Favorite Line: "If this is what happens when God is looking out for us, I'd hate to see Him pissed." A humorous line to lighten the mood up a bit after falling off a huge ledge.

Favorite Scene: When Marcus Luttrell was rescued and was going home. No words can describe this. Sorry I couldn't get videos.

I hope you enjoyed my list, it was very hard to do to. Have fun with your own and May the Force be with you.
